Introduction: Langos (between Heaven and a Heart Attack)

Picture of Langos (between Heaven and a Heart Attack)
You know how good pizza is? And how good fried foods taste? Well just imagine deep frying a pizza; that's pretty much Lángos (Pronounced Lang-oh-sh).

I learned how to make Lángos while in Sweden, from a Swedish/Greek man who learned it from his Swedish/Greek father...after some research I found out it is a Hungarian food - But who cares where it is from since it will make your breath bad, it is unhealthy, not-vegan but so delicious.

Lángos can be made with yoghurt, sour cream or milk instead of water, a dash of sugar along with salt and sometimes with flour and boiled mashed potatoes, which is called Potato Lángos (in Hungarian Krumplis lángos or Krumplislángos).[2] It is eaten fresh and warm, topped with sour cream and grated cheese, or Liptauer, ham, or sausages, rubbed with garlic or garlic butter, or doused with garlic water. Other ingredients and accompaniments can be mushroom, quark cheese, eggplant, cabbage, kefir, omelet, a confectioners' sugar, or jam. - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L%C3%A1ngos
 

The Ingredients you will need are:

  • Flour
  • Yeast
  • Salt
  • An onion
  • Garlic
  • Butter/olive oil
  • Sour cream
  • Cheese (something melty like Mozzarella, Havarti, Cheddar)
  • Oil for frying in (rapeseed, vegetable, canola...)


Optional:

  • A green or red jalapeno (not traditional but really adds to the Lángos)

Step 1:

Start by making a pizza dough, one which rises well. I would explain how I do it but I don't measure anything; i just combine the flour/water/yeast and sometimes sugar, grated carrot, herbs, pepper, spices together in quantities that look right for the kind of pizza I'm about to make. The dough I use for Langos would be one that I would use for a deep-dish pizza.

Make the dough, let it rise, and then turn it into disks (about 1-1.5 cm thick) which will fit in the cookware which you'll be frying in.

Step 2:

Slide your disks into some hot oil so that they sit at least halfway submerged. If you have enough oil so that the Langos is completely submerged then that's all the better. Remove when golden brown on both sides

Step 3:

Brush some finely chopped garlic/butter(or olive oil) onto your hot Langos disk.

Step 4:

Next top with the diced onion and salt and sour cream.

You're almost there.

Sprinkle some grated cheese on top of your Langos disk.

Congratulations! You've made Langos and now you can spread the deliciously unhealthy disks to your friends, family and maybe strangers (if you're feeling so generous).
